Seven continues in first place this week, which saw more memorable tennis on day three of the Australian Open.

The broadcaster will not have any more Nick Kyrgios theatrics to cover this tournament, but Aussie hope Bernard Tomic managed to advance to the next round with a win.

As well as its main feed on the primary channel, there is plenty of tennis on offer from Seven with alternative feeds on 7TWO and 7mate in addition to the 7Tennis app.

The Wednesday Seven evening average audience of 742,000 was the biggest yet this week. The Melbourne audience of 308,000 easily made up the bulk of the crowd. The broadcaster also had a better audience watching later into the night – 371,000.

The final week of Big Bash League regular matches – before the semifinals and the final to be played next week – saw the Adelaide Strikers end the season for the Sydney Thunder with the Strikers winning by 77 runs. Over 600,000 watched both sessions of the BBL clash.

The debut of new episodes of Shaun Micallef’s Stairway To Heaven did 335,000 for SBS, earning a spot in the top 20.

Week two of new episodes of Vikings on SBS saw 226,000 watching after 9.30pm, while 226,000 were also watching the Vikings doco at 7.30pm.
